Adam Caplan of ESPN, citing a league source, reports that the Raiders are expected to sign WR Kris Durham to a contract.

The Saints and Cowboys recently brought Durham in for workouts, but there hasn’t been any updates regarding an opportunity until now.

Durham, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2011. He spent one year in Seattle before he was released before the start of the 2012 season.

Detroit later signed him to their practice squad in September of 2012. Durham wound up appearing in 20 games for the Lions during his two years in Detroit.

The Lions elected to place Durham on waivers at the start of the 2014 season, but he was later claimed by the Titans.

In 2014, Durham appeared in four games and caught six passes for 54 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
